Berk's Grapevine

Help Support Berk's Grapevine!


Hi dragon fans! I have some cool plans for this site in the future, including more interviews and many, many more dragon giveaways! However, as things currently are, the site doesn't quite have the budget to give out tons of cool dragon things to everyone. (And the last thing I would want is to cover it with ads.) However, there are plenty of awesome things I can offer people who help support Berk’s Grapevine!

  • Want to contribute your own questions for interviews with artists, producers, and more?
  • Interested in receiving extra dragon news, info, and photos before anyone else?
  • Or in chatting with other fans (and Toothless!) on the Grapevine's private discussion board?

If you can’t support the site, don’t worry: you will still get to see all the cool things in store for Berk’s Grapevine! But if you do, you will not only be responsible for making Berk’s Grapevine even more fun and dragonesque, but you’ll be receiving these awesome opportunities as well!

And by the way, thank you so much for your support of this site already through your comments, emails, and help finding new dragon things to share! This site would be nothing without all of you!

  2. This is cool! Too bad I'm too poor to support the site... Otherwise I would gladly do so. Maybe in the future then! It's great to hear that you want to keep this site even more dragonesque than before, Icelandiceel. Thank you for that! We fans appreciate your work. :)

  4. I'm 100% doing this! Man, ever since I left Tumblr, I've felt ridiculously detached from you guys in the fandom. I am extremely excited to get to support this site... because it is an incredibly place and Eel has done a fantastic job here! Wow, thanks for letting us help make this site even better! It's really a joy to be able to be more involved.

    Toothless' face: Jim Carrey's aggressive personality from "Me, Myself, and Irene," Marlin's bags from "Finding Nemo," and I forgot what characters have wide mouth slits partially open.

    The kid reminds me a little too much of Gustav Larson.

  14. Guys have you been now noticing that hiccup has 2 braides in his hair????

    Looks like astrid puts then in before they were officially a couple or he puts then in himself

    ReplyDelete
  15. He never liked having braids in his hair so maybe Astrid does it to 'tease' him.

  17. I did this while I was at DreamWorks! It was AWESOME. The wind in your face is such a great touch.

  18. I definitely do! The more dragons, the better! And thank you for being such amazing visitors and commenters! :)

  19. This is very cool. I'd really love to help, but... I can't really do much as of now. Perhaps until I'm financially dependent. I wish the best of luck for this lovely Grapevine :)

  20. I never really comment, or participate that much in the community, but what IcelandicEel has done here is pretty incredible. Maybe the discussion board will help me getting into the community here, but either way the site deserves my money.
    By the way, thanks IcelandicEel for such an amazing website!

  21. Whether people read, comment, have accounts, it's awesome no matter what. It's a really special thing to be able to write for an audience with the same interests (DRAGONS!). I can't wait to get to know you and work with you! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh my gods...I screamed and laughed at the same time when I first saw this. There are no words.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No hate from this hiccstrid shipper. I thought this shot was very nice. The angle before, with their shadows coming together was an interesting decision...made it seem more intimate to me, so I wasn't sure whether the creators intended it to be platonic or not. What's your take?

    ReplyDelete
  29. just good friends

  30. looks like tumbkr is whining about hiccstrid again idk what their beef is

    I would love to do this! Only when I'm financially stable. Maybe Dragon Trainer, Scribe or Keeper. I'll see what I can do with my next payday. I love this sight. XD

  32. They used a lot of words with s. The dialogue would have been impossible to understand if they pronounced everything without the s.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I don't get why people are getting mad that astrid said they were just friends I mean come on this is astrid were talking about she doesn't show her feelings very often

    (SPOILERS FOLLOW)
    I think it was to give us a supposed "Luke and Leia" fake-out before Heather's true origins are revealed.

  39. Which languages can we choose while watching "Dreamworks Dargons: Race to the Edge" on Netflix?

    ReplyDelete
  40. i really hope if i can help! but i can't sorry! :(

  41. I wish I could help but I can't, and I'd have the borrow the cash from my mother since I still live under her roof; but we have a huge butt medical bill to pay and I had to get a job for the summer to support her an myself.


    This is an amazing community that you have created, and I'm glad it's still up and running. I've been here since the first trailer of the second movie and this is, by far, my favorite social media site!

  43. Eh sorry, I meant until I'm financially independent (^^;)

    Until then, keep up your doing good, Icelandic

    ReplyDelete
  44. I really don't think there is any question about romantic tension here. They are friends, and Heather is alone and hurting, and Hiccup cares about that. It is a kind gesture on both their parts, not anything more or less. Anyway, that's my opinion. (By the way, LOVED those episodes).

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think it may come from the fact that Astrid has kissed Hiccup openly in front of the entire village twice now... so it seems to be kind of backtracking for her and Hiccup to feel awkward around each other. Hiccup even had a pet name for her in GotNF (which he carried over to the second film). I'm not saying it is some kind of major crime of being out-of-character, but Astrid has shown her feelings very openly about Hiccup before, so it seems strange that she would hide it. Anyway, that's my two cents. I'm not particularly upset.

  46. where can i get to watch Race to the Edge with eng sub? >< please~~

    ReplyDelete
  52. that is true but they don't or haven't really have a label on what they are in there relationship

    ReplyDelete
  53. Haha, true. But "friends" don't usually kiss one another in front of the entire island... :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. true lol but i think they will get passed that friend zone really soon but when heather said he is pretty cute i could tell that hiccup meant more then a friend to astrid

    ReplyDelete
  55. Maybe Astrid is just still a little cautious of the subject around Heather... Considering what happened in RoB. That would make sense. Yeah, Astrid definitely likes him.

    ReplyDelete
  56. that makes sense i was kind of surprised that she didn't say anything or was a little cautious around her from RoB

    When Heather didn't kill Dagur I was really disappointed. Even though he's family, he doesn't deserve any mercy because of what he's done. Heather was going to make a right decision for once in a very long time. But Hiccup had to intervene and she chose to run away, again. Now Dagur will sail free again to massacre whatever and whoever he wants. But I guess Dagur has to stay alive for at least the rest of the season because he'll be important for plot etc etc. :/

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think the real reason this moment bothers hiccstrid shippers is because Heather has gotten more development as a character, as well as intimate moments with Hiccup, in two episodes than Astrid has gotten in two whole seasons. I am an Astrid fan as well as a Hiccstrid fan, and personally I found this moment very touching. You're completely right; it's purely platonic and nothing more than brotherly/sisterly friendship. But at the same time, I couldn't help but feel a small ache, knowing that this kind of tender, hurt/comfort moment is exactly what I've always longed to see between Hiccup and Astrid. Astrid has a back story too, and is emotionally scarred in her own way. Let's not forget that she watched her uncle and childhood hero get struck by the Flightmare when she was only five, and grew up thinking she would one day have to meet the same fate (Astrid and Heather's backstory's are actually somewhat similar in this way, and that's beautiful). But we've seen so little of her real emotional journey in the show that it just kind of saddens us to see Hiccup to give so much of his empathy to someone like Heather, when we've never really seen him give it to the girl he is going to marry someday.


    Anyway, that's been my experience. I definitely am not upset. I love Heather, these episodes were AMAZING and both brought me close to tears. But I do understand the ache hiccstrid shippers are feeling, and it's disappointing that they are turning that ache into anger an hating on two of the best episodes and one of the most beautiful brother/sister relationships in the HTTYD universe. It's giving us a bad name. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. That's an excellent point! I hadn't even thought of it as a "Luke and Leia" fake out, but looking back, the mysterious intimacy of that moment really hightened the drama of the reveal later on. :)
